Inner Simplicity

I think the number one reason why most people even think about simplifying their lives is to attain some level of inner peace and contentment. They have tried all of the outward trappings – new cars, new houses, wardrobes, careers, relationships – and found that while those things can bring some joy and satisfaction, the positive feelings are only fleeting and they can also bring added stress and gets exhausting. Always looking outside of ourselves for happiness is indeed exhausting. The search is just endless.

The Art of Feeling Good

Like I always say it’s not wrong to feel sad – just don’t do it on a daily basis. That kind of life just sucks. If you are feeling sad, if you are having one of those melancholic days, try to turn on the JOY switch. Sometimes in my case, that switching on will take a lot of prodding, and other times I find that I can switch to happy mode in the blink of an eye. But no matter what it takes, the point is to do it, to switch from feeling down to any notch up from there. How? Let me tell you some simple tricks I’ve learned.

We blame and never think a thing about it. Yeah sure more times than not we are probably justified in our accusations, but so what?!

Meditation and Self-Realization

I have realized that I have actually been identifying my existence with my position in society, my friends and family, the needs and desires of my body, and the emotional and intellectual expressions of my mind. But I have not been taking the time to contemplate the real nature of my existence; to ask myself the question, “Who am I?”

Ananda Marga – The Path of Bliss

For the past few weeks I have been researching and practicing yoga for beginners. I have been looking for a yogi to teach me here in Iloilo but unfortunately I have not found anyone yet. But guess what – Facebook has solved my dilemma. A friend contacted me and introduced me to Ananda Marga Wellness Center. But before I get into more detail about Ananda Marga let me explain what “yoga” really is first to diminish the misconceptions about it. First of all, yoga is not a religion – it is a way of life, a lifestyle.

Why Do I Love SpongeBob?

Why do I love SpongeBob? Because he’s the epitome of a true optimist! He shows his love of others with his overeagerness to do good and help people.
